2 Energy! Energy is the capacity to do work, and ability to cause motion SI Unit = Joules (J)1 Joule = 1 N * 1 m1 Joule = (1 kg * m/s2) * 1m1 Joule = 1 kg * m2/s2
3 Energy! There are 7 forms of energy But there are 2 broad terms that we use: kinetic and potential. Each of the 7 types have a form of kinetic and potential.Basically:Potential = stored energyKinetic = energy of motionWe will look at the 7, then zoom in on KE and PE a bit more.
4 The 7 Types of Energy! Mechanical Energy Chemical Energy Electrical EnergyNuclear EnergyThermal EnergyRadiant EnergySound EnergyAnd remember, each one of these 7 has a form of potential energy and each has a form of kinetic energy
5 The 7 Types of Energy!Mechanical Energy – the energy stored in an object due to its motion or position.Mech Kinetic Energy: a moving car, a cheetah runningMech Potential Energy: stored in a spring, compressed ball, or a plane in the airExamples:A running kid, a flying plane, a potted plant sitting on a ledge
6 The 7 Types of Energy!2) Chemical Energy – Energy stored in the bonds that hold them together.Chem Potential Energy: stored in a battery or ethanolThis energy changes into another form during chemical reactions.Examples:Food, batteries, humans, gasoline, trees, etc.
7 The 7 Types of Energy! 3) Electrical Energy – Energy of electrons moving around a circuit.Elec Kinetic Energy: movement of electronsElec Potential Energy: stored in a capacitor4) Nuclear Energy – Energy associated with the nucleusElec Potential Energy: stored in the forces binding the nucleus together; unstable nuclei
8 The 7 Types of Energy!5) Thermal Energy – type of energy that comes from heat and vibration of molecules.6) Light/Radiant Energy – energy associated with electromagnetic spectrum and light waves.Radiant Kinetic Energy: movement of photons7) Sound Energy – Energy that is associated with the movement of sound waves.Sound Kinetic Energy: movement of atoms/molecules

10 Potential EnergyEnergy stored due to position or shape. It has the ability or “potential” to move.There are 2 types:1) Elastic – energy stored by things that stretch (or compress).Examples? - Rubber bands, sling shots, elastic,muscles, a spring, a ball bouncing, etc…
11 Elastic Potential Energy Much of the “pop” of a golf ball off of a drive is the amount of compression within the impact. The golf ball wants to return to its normal shape…
12 Potential EnergyRemember energy stored due to position. It has the ability or “potential” to move.There are 2 types:2) Gravitational Potential Energy- energy stored by objects that are lifted off the ground.Grav Potent Energy = mass * gravity * heightA 65kg rock climber ascends a cliff. What is the climber’s GPE at a point 35m above the base of the cliff?GPE = m * g * hGPE = 65kg * 9.8m/s2 * 35mGPE = joules
13 Kinetic Energy Formula KE = ½ m * v2 Units = Joules Kinetic – energy of motion. Amount of energy depends on objects mass and velocity.FormulaKE = ½ m * v2Units = Joules
14 Kinetic Energy Formula KE = ½ m * v2 Remember kinetic energy is the energy of motion.FormulaKE = ½ m * v2Units = Joules (remember 1J = 1N * 1m/s)Practice: What is the Kinetic Energy of a 44kg cheetah running at 31m/s?KE = ½ (44 kg) * (31m/s)2KE = ½ (44 kg) * 916m2/s2KE = 21,142 joules
15 Law of Conservation of Energy Energy can never be created and never destroyed. Energy can only change from one form to another.Net Energy is the total amount of energy in a system.The total or net amount of energy must stay the same when energy changes forms.
16 Law of Conservation of Energy Before the dropIf the 4kg soccer ball is held at a height of 5m, how much GPE does it have?GPE = M * G * H = 196 joules of GPEIf the 4kg soccer ball is held at a height of 5m, how much KE does it have?KE = ½ mv2 = 0 joules of KE (not moving)
17 Law of Conservation of Energy After the drop…If the 4kg soccer ball is dropped, how much GPE does it have when it strikes the ground at 0m?GPE = M * G * H = 0 joules of GPE (height is 0m)KE = ½ mv2 = 196 joules of KEM = 4kgV = m/s at impact
18 Law of Conservation of Energy Recap:So for an object that is going to simply “fall”GPE at the Drop Point = KE at the Impact PointBecause all of the GPE is converted to KE throughout the fallThis only works for “falling” objects though….A roller coaster is not falling, per se…
19 But a Roller Coaster is not just a fall… As we start at the top of the 1st hill…
20 Energy Changes on the Roller Coaster We saw on previous slide that the GPE the car has at the top of the 1st hill will turn into KE as the car travels down the hill. And that the KE the car has at the bottom of the 1st hill will turn into GPE as the car travels up the next hill. But is this a perfect transformation of energy from GPE to KE and back? Nope. Energy is lost as heat and sound.
21 Energy ConversionsExplain what energy we are starting with and what energy we are ending with for the following products:A LightbulbStart with __Electricity_ End with ___Light__ Waste __Heat___Can you determine the other 4 energy conversions? Remember: Law of Conservation of Energy…A fan Start with __________ End with _________ Waste ________A battery Start with __________ End with _________ Waste ________A fire Start with __________ End with _________ Waste ________A glowstick Start with __________ End with _________ Waste ________
22 Energy Conversion Example: As a swing moves back and forth, the energy is converting from one form to another…..Why will the swing eventually stop?In what form will that energy be transferred into?
